[isdntekvideo] Here is a true ‘iconic’ 1950’s cruising lead sled which uses a modern drive line for motivation and ‘Air Ride’ suspension for that ‘lowered’ look when parked. This 1949 Mercury has an unusual chopped top. The Merc started its life as a 2-door sedan and then had an approximate 4” chop performed. Instead of using the original top again, the builder designed a ‘permanent’ convertible style top. LIKE that of a removeable ‘Carson’ top.
The build took place approximately 19 years ago at the hands of its prior owner and designer. All the custom bodywork looks good, but it is starting to show its age with small cracks and chips. Custom work includes; frenched head and tail lights, sunken antenna’s, nosed, decked, shaved door handles and removal of the side trim. The current holder of this fine cruiser purchased it about 4 years ago and has logged only 3500 miles on the odometer attending car shows and cruise events in his home state. The electric door opener does not work so access is through the vent window.
Power comes from a ‘crate motor’ 350 c.i./330 h.p. small block Chevrolet with an Edelbrock intake and carburetor. Behind the small Chevy is a 700R4 overdrive transmission which helps get 24mpg on the highway at 60 mph. The Merc runs cool year round with the use of an oversized radiator and electric thermostatically controlled fan.
Additional comforts include; power steering and brakes (discs front, drums rear), Vintage A/C & heat (works), Ididit tilt steering column, power windows, Lecarra steering wheel, and a Kenwood AM/FM/CD player (which currently does not work). All of the ‘Classic’ gauges function normally except the fuel gauge is not working.
Suspension is the stock 1949 Mercury with 2” lowered spindles in the front and ‘Air’ bags out back. Tires are new Coker P205 x 75R x 15’s all the way around and finished with vintage Cadillac hubcaps.

I have been an active eBay seller of cars and other items for more than 15 years and maintained a 100% rating during most of that period. Approximately 8 years ago I started an online service assisting owners of Classic, Vintage, and Muscle cars to sell their vehicles without them leaving the garage. These are private individual owners who do not want to deal with the public and all the endless phone calls, “Tire kickers”, and other nonsense that goes on when trying to sell a car. They just want someone to sell it!!
